Accordion Panel Fold

A month or so ago, I shared this style card in a new letter, and many asked for a video. Today I have all the detail of this Accordion Panel Fold. It was called Pleated Card, and I renamed it to an Accordion Panel fold. Wild folding this piece of designer paper, all I could think of was an accordion. 
My best tip to create this accordion panel is to fold it to choose a designer paper that goes in the same direction front and back. Both sides of the designer paper will be exposed, so the direction of both sides is important for this fold. 

Video On How to Create The Accordion Panel Fold 

In this video, I share how to create the Accordion Panel Fold and adhere it to a card base. See the measurement below.

The most friendly tool for this card is the Simply Scored. Of course, you can always score with your paper trimmer but trust me, the simple score tool is the best for this card due to the TWELVE score line.
